Hey Peeps, how’s things? I’ve been busy as not only is it half term meaning Daisy is at home every day, but it was also her tenth birthday on Tuesday. I can’t believe my little girl is now in double digits! Her favourite presents were her Elsa dress and wig. There was a definite Frozen theme to her presents and party, as she shows no signs of growing out of that particular obsession just yet, despite me trying to nudge her into Minion fever 😛
We also spent Monday at Crealy Adventure Park in Devon, and although the weather wasn’t up to much we had a really fun day. It was just about perfect for a child of Daisy’s age as there were lots of soft play and outdoor play areas, with a selection of rides that didn’t have much of a queue at all. The only ones that did were the two rollercoasters, and we were given a special pass for people with disabilities that allowed us to skip right to the front of the queue. Fantastic! I haven’t been on a rollercoaster in years and was worried they might make me feel nauseous these days, but I absolutely loved them. It’s only the really spinny things I need to steer clear of, it seems.
Gabriel’s favourite thing at Crealy was crawling around and investigating autumn leaves:
And Daisy looked great as a pirate!
Other than those things, I’m struggling to remember what I’ve been doing with my time. Lots of laundry, I think! I am a little more advanced in the anthology project, though, so that’s something. Also, I’ve nearly finished my new novelette, so that’s exciting. Should be able to get both those things published in November
Tomorrow I’ll be welcoming Liam Livings onto the blog who’ll be telling us about his new novel, the final part of the Best Friends Perfect trilogy. Hope some of you can stop by to say hello to him.
Right, I have stuff to do. Piles and piles of admin, and some more babyproofing in the living room. That boy is into everything!
What’s everyone else up to? Please share your news!
Love and hugs,
